An excellent player for the money.

Upconverting Recording Center [Update 5/08/08]

 

The Samsung DVD-VR357 DVD Recorder/ VCR Combo is, simply put, a general purpose recording center for use with a cable converter box. No more, and no less. In support of this role, Samsung has done a good job of making a complex machine relatively ...

Compact multi-function machine, good up-conversion image, DVD-RW format compatible with Sony Portable Players.

No independent tuner, blocky DVD image compression, may not support DVI.
